Tofino Treble Sparrows – "A Thousand Suns" from On the Beach on Vimeo.

Over the last couple months, the Tofino Treble Sparrows, choir director Sophie L’Homme, videographer Mark McKeough and Julia Simmerling recorded a special song to say ‘thank you’ to all the front-line workers who have made the region feel safe during these uncertain times.

All the young singers recorded their performance social distancing at home, but we were together at heart.

The production of the virtual choir performance titled ‘We want to thank you so much’ was supported by a Clayoquot Biosphere Trust Responsive Neighbourhood Small Grant. Learn more about Covid-19 Responsive Neighbourhood Grants.
